Funeral Service Program

What are the job functions of a Funeral Director?

Today’s funeral directors specialize in many areas. This unique career requires the ability to have sympathy and provide empathy for those struggling with loss. As a licensed professional, a funeral director must be able to assist and support the bereaved, understand and provide various special skills for preparing a deceased body for viewing, and follow all applicable laws put in place by the regulatory agencies overseeing death care.

What options do I have at NTCC?

NTCC’s Associate of Applied Science in Funeral Service offers education in both funeral directing and embalming. Students will gain an understanding of progressive business practices in the funeral industry and a technical education about the physical death process. The A.A.S. degree will also include classes on current events in the funeral industry and a specialized course about cremation.

Coming Fall 2018: The Certificate program offers a 10 month program for those who would prefer to just study the funeral directing aspect of the industry. Certificate students focus on merchandising, business management and practices, accounting, and psychology.
